    Here is the latest issue of my newsletter.


    SUPERTIPS EZINE

    Issue 98: May 9, 2005
    Harvey Segal, Editor


    Hello SuperTips readers,


    Here's a question for you.

    A few weeks ago I had lunch with a group of Internet
    marketers in London's West End.

    When it came to discussing what they were working on
    and what was making them their fortunes do you know
    what the one topic of conversation was ?

    The one which had them revealing quite extraordinary
    profit figures.

    The one which did not involve the hassle of creating a
    product, dealing with customers, providing support,
    giving refunds.

    Or running an affiliate program and finding your
    commissions had gone missing or the affiliate links had
    been changed without your knowledge.


    The answer ?

    ===> AdSense

    Yes, those little ads at a website dominated the entire
    discussion.


    Well I kept quiet. I did not dare tell them of my
    previous day's earnings - 89 cents.

    But I listened.

    I heard about all the various programs and clever ideas
    they were using and realised I was seriously missing
    out.

    And it was the discovery of one 'missing link' which
    made me decide it was now my time to get involved in
    the world of AdSense.

    Here was my reasoning.

    It's clear that once you have created a site and
    positioned your AdSense ads to the maximum effect then
    it's just a matter of getting traffic to your site.

    However there comes a time - the law of diminishing
    returns - when piling in more and more effort in, for
    example, trying to improve your site's search engine
    rankings has less and less effect.

    So how about another approach.

    Suppose you had a way of creating a simple site very
    quickly. A site so basic that it barely manages to pull
    in ten dollars a week.

    And suppose you had a way to duplicate that effort and
    - over a period of time of course - you created 100
    similar sites.

    That would yield a nice 1000 dollars per week.

    Easy isn't it?

    Alas no - I hear you say.

    Surely I've glossed over all the problems ?

    For example

    * how to monitor 100 sites.

    * how to control the administration.

    For example you get a bill today to pay for the domain
    cost of site number 83. And tomorrow a bill to renew
    hosting of site number 59. It's a nightmare isn't it ?

    * the huge costs of hosting

    * how to create the content


    OK. Let's deal with all these problems one by one.

    * Monitoring 100 sites

    Forget about it. These are sites you build very
    quickly, if they earn just 10 dollars a week that's
    fine. Just leave them to run by themselves.


    * Administration of the domains.

    Well for simplicity just use one domain provider, so
    you get into a routine for creating a new domain. I use
    GoDaddy. I then use automatic renewal so I never have
    to actively pay a domain bill. And there's a global
    edit feature if I need to make an across the board
    change to my account.


    * Administration and payment of hosting.

    Again you don't want to use lots of different providers
    and have to learn the ins and outs of each one. I have
    a reseller account with unlimited domains. Which means
    I pay a mere $20 per month and I can set up site after
    site with no extra cost and all using the same control
    panel features.


    * Creating the content

    That's an area I won't go into detail here but just to
    say there are vast areas of public domain material you
    can use and sites with thousands of free articles which
    the authors WANT you to publish.


    Which leaves us with one final task - the actual
    creation of the site.

    At this point enter the missing link.

    It's a tool called XSitePro and basically it is a
    website building package designed specifically for the
    Internet marketer.

    Before showing you what it does let me tell you about
    one person who is VERY excited about this tool.

    He has so many sites he can't even recall them all.

    He is in fact the king of minisites - Phil Wiley.

    I call him the king for good reason. I've only ever
    featured one outside product on the home page of my
    SuperTips site. It was Phil's book 'Mini Site Profits'.


    Since then I've reorganised the site and the home page
    contains nothing but my own ebooks. So that first page
    has moved down to page two. Here it is

    http://www.supertips.com/two.htm


    You can see that if one person should be qualified to
    evaluate this tool it's Phil.

    So how do I know that Phil is so enamored with XSitePro ?

    Well he was sitting next to me at that lunch.

    See - you get it from the horse's mouth here at
    SuperTips.


    What XSitePro can do is best illustrated by a site I
    have just redesigned with it.

    Here's the old version.

    http://www.decision-making-tools.com/index-old.html

    That has been around for a few years but I've done
    little to develop it. The original purpose was just to
    promote two tape products for which I was an affiliate.
    But I did not fancy the work involved in expanding it
    to include ebooks, a navigation menu, articles with
    AdSense, site map and so on.

    Enter XSitePro.

    Here's the new look.

    http://www.decision-making-tools.com


    That took me a whole TWO hours !

    Take a look at the articles lists in Personal Decision
    Making and Business Decision Making. They were built
    automatically.

    Similarly for the site map.

    The AdSense blocks were created simply by pressing the
    Insert Google AdSense button and indicating my
    preference for the size of block, colours etc.

    No knowledge of HTML was necessary.

    And when it came time to go live I just pressed the
    Publish button.

    There's so much more I can utilize such as pop-ups, a
    links page, redirect files.

    I can also take a long page and instantly split it into
    as many pages as I want.

    It can also perform SEO (Search Engine Optimization) by
    analyzing each page and telling you what you need to do
    such as

    "You should have the keyword appear at least once in
    your page description"
    or
    "The total number of words in the page description
    should be greater than 20"

    And, cleverly, that figure of 20 is configurable should
    the supposed rules of SEO ever change.

    You can't fail to overlook such tasks because there's
    an automatic to-do list which shows all outstanding
    items.


    New versions of this tool will have even more exciting
    new features according to the author Paul Smithson.

    And how do I know this ?

    Well Paul was also sitting next to me at lunch.

    So I'll have to repeat myself - you get it from the
    horse's mouth here at SuperTips.



    Anyway I can't hang around much longer, I've got sites
    to build.

    And so would you if you grab hold of XSitePro

    Harvey,

    that is great info and a huge improvement over the old site.

    are you referring to the colored blocks on the left and the top of the page?

    This post has nothing to do with XSitePro but more with the numerous
    automatic content creators people are using to create sites.
    Just a note that people may want to start thinking more about quality
    and less about quantity in the future with automatic content generators.
    Adwords has just made some changes, and there is now an option where
    advertisers can list domains where they don't want their ads to appear.
    It is limited to 25 domains for now, so there will probably not be a huge
    impact right away, but I look for this number to increase in the future.
    Advertisers are demanding it. There has been a lot of discussion on
    the WebmasterWorld forums about this. A lot of people just take these
    automatic content creators and throw as many pages together as
    quickly as possible without any regard to quality, but these type of pages
    may be seeing less revenue from Adsense in the future. I think the
    quality of the content is going to be much more important in the
    future. If you take the time to make quality pages, these changes
    should help increase your Adsense revenue.

    The AdSense blocks are within the actual articles, for example

    I think AdSense is bringing this on themselves by not enforcing their own terms. The terms clearly indicate that a page shouldn't be created specifically just to display AdSense ads.

    On other forums, I've seen examples of pages that have a few words along with AdSense. Other pages of the site follow the same pattern but are on completely different topics. It's obvious why the pages were created and little if any useful information is provided to a visitor who searches for and visits the site.

    But I've read of repeated contacts with AdSense to report these sites and AdSense does nothing about it. Thus, more and more people decide to jump on the bandwagon and ride it for as long as possible.

    It's not surprising the next logical step is some type of automated content generator.

    I think where it's really going to hurt Google is when someone searches for information on some topic and has to wade through pages of search results before finding some really useful & applicable information.

    Harvey's article is very interesting. I am sure people can use XSitePro to create thousands of Web sites very easily.
    Displaying Google ads on those sites are also easy to do. But the hard part is how to bring visitors to those sites.
    Based on my readings on the Web, for a site to make 10 dollars a week, it needs about 5000 visitors per day.
    How can we bring so many visitors to such low quality Web sites? Is there any tools to help?

    Thanks.

    Not sure where you read that, but it's not even close to being accurate.

    I have a site which get's just over 500 visitors per day, but brings in between $150-$200 a day.

    Frankly....with the numbers you quoted, I wouldn't even bother getting out of bed.

    I would agree here with webfusion, as I do know someone who gets roughly 5000 unique visitors to his site per month and manages to make around $10 in adsense revenue...

    although he doesn't quite sell anything on his site as it is primarily a photo based site with photos of get togethers etc, it just goes to show that you don't really need 5,000 visitors per day to make $10/wk

    I suppose they never bothered to tweak with different colours, placement, etc. It does make a significant difference to the bottom line.

    $150 with 500 visitors sounds great. You are generating a value of $3/visitor to your site even without selling any product! Are you using adwords to drive even more traffic to your site?

    Correction. Should be $0.30/visitor.

    Why don't you try PPC? Since you know each visitor can earn you $0.30, you can afford to spend $0.10-0.20 on each click to increase your traffic.

    I know to the heavy PPC users it probably seems like I'm leaving money on the table by not utilizing PPC...but the fact is, aside from utilizing PPC when I test new products/ad copy, I simply don't want the bother of tracking and managing multiple ad campaigns. With 31 CB products, 17 content sites, and my online jewelry business, I've got about all on my plate that I want to handle. Considering the fact that between free traffic, affiliate referrals, bookmarks, articles, links, etc......my combined traffic free traffic totals across all my properties average over 250,000 visitors per day. As long as I can continue to build free traffic, I'll keep my money in my pocket Wink

    bloody good for you.
    Thought IŽd had a reasonable day today (although nowhere anywhere near your league) till I saw what I'd spent.
    Fortunately I have a couple of content sites to fall back on.
    PPC is becoming a complete waste of time these days, in my experience.

    Harvey, I watched the video of this software and it looks like it would do the trick, how long did it take you to get familiar with this software?

    I posted a few questions you had answered about an ebook I am working on, but know have a problem and could use this software.

    I hate reading manuals...more or less just a dig-in-and-get-to-work kind of guy, that is why I was wondering about the learning curve.

    I had created a ninche site the first of April than started my ebook figuring I would have time before this site started getting listed as I had done no SE submissions. Just one directory listing.

    After not checking this site until today I was pleased and shocked.

    April-MSN listing and ranking number 1 for 3 popular search terms with over 3 million competing pages.

    May- Google listing 2 rankings top 5 and 6 in top 30.

    Mind you this is a 9 page site with no outbound or inbound links and created over the course of three days.

    Traffic for May to date is 20,000 hits and the last two days were nearing 1500 hits per day! It seems like just yesterday I had time to goof off Sad

    Will Xsitepro allow me to tweak each page description after it is created?

    I find there is, for right now anyway, one thing I had in common on all my sites and pages when getting ranked and it is very relative to what order I use the title and headings in the page description.

    Also I did not take the time to look at xsitepro other than the video to know if it would work with frontpage extensions which I presume it might not?

    I have another editor I can use to convert this site so that is really not a problem.

    With the numbers this site is generating in under two months with just uploading and no SEO....I am going to add about 1000 pages and adsense this one to the hilt Smile

    Please don't dog me too bad on "ninche" not being niche. That's what happens when the only manual I decide to read was spellcheck.

    DW,

    Less than 2 hours - that's the time I spent on
    working through the tutorial (rather than just reading it)
    which I strongly recommend.

    Of course, you can change anything about a page.
    In fact the to-do list will show you every task
    on every page which is outstanding
    e.g
    * You should have the keyword appear at least once in your page description
    * You should have the keyword appear at least once in the alt text of images on your page

    Although you don't need any knowledge of HTML to use
    XSitePro you are free to add your own HTML to any page.
    Does that answer your question ? (I am not familiar with
    Frontpage extensions)

    That's interesting. Based on some numbers I recall from your earlier posts that should equate to about $0.53 per 100 visitors.
